⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ Editable MS Word, PDF, and Google Slides all included! This evolution by natural selection webquest makes a great introduction your evolution unit. Your students will learn about natural selection and answer questions while viewing the Natural Selection video by the Amoeba Sisters on YouTube. They then will play Who Wants to Live a Million Years game where students select adaptations for a species to ensure its survival in changing environments over time. This is one of my best selling resources! I hope your students have as much fun as mine!

Topics Included

✔ Natural Selection
✔ Evolution
✔ Traits and Genes
✔ Mutations
✔ Biological Fitness
✔ Survival of the Fittest
✔ Charles Darwin and the Galapagos

Apply concepts of statistics and probability to support explanations that organisms with an advantageous heritable trait tend to increase in proportion to organisms lacking this trait. Emphasis is on analyzing shifts in numerical distribution of traits and using these shifts as evidence to support explanations. Assessment is limited to basic statistical and graphical analysis. Assessment does not include allele frequency calculations.
Construct an explanation based on evidence for how natural selection leads to adaptation of populations. Emphasis is on using data to provide evidence for how specific biotic and abiotic differences in ecosystems (such as ranges of seasonal temperature, long-term climate change, acidity, light, geographic barriers, or evolution of other organisms) contribute to a change in gene frequency over time, leading to adaptation of populations.
Construct an explanation based on evidence that describes how genetic variations of traits in a population increase some individuals’ probability of surviving and reproducing in a specific environment. Emphasis is on using simple probability statements and proportional reasoning to construct explanations.
Use mathematical representations to support explanations of how natural selection may lead to increases and decreases of specific traits in populations over time. Emphasis is on using mathematical models, probability statements, and proportional reasoning to support explanations of trends in changes to populations over time. Assessment does not include Hardy Weinberg calculations.
Evaluate the evidence supporting claims that changes in environmental conditions may result in (1) increases in the number of individuals of some species, (2) the emergence of new species over time, and (3) the extinction of other species. Emphasis is on determining cause and effect relationships for how changes to the environment such as deforestation, fishing, application of fertilizers, drought, flood, and the rate of change of the environment affect distribution or disappearance of traits in species.
